    Default List of Flashlight Brands adopted or used by gov agencies or large private groups?

    I would like to separate the various brands on here into two groups; The ones that have a reputation good enough to be adopted by either a gov agency or large private organization.......And those that miss out.

    Who wants to start the list.....Name the brand and the "group" that adopted it.

    Hey great topic, there is always a lot of talk on here about lights and their use in the military etc, with that in mind can we also add brand and model. I can only add one confirmed to the list

    Maglite Magcharger - Queensland Police Service (actually probably all Australian Police however can't confirm that).

    CMG Infinity Ultra, with HA coating, had a US NSN (government contract/inventory number, or something like that).

    The obvious...the LAPD light, heck they helped design it.

    Novatac did a very large order before we got ours, and it seems like military/leo's got a preview... i don't know any confirmation.

    I've heard SF 6P's are standard CIA issue.

    SF helmet mount lights for our military.

    CMG's as already mentioned.

    And it seems every LEO at one point or another used a maglite.
    List of flashlights that used to be here has been removed (by me) to save our search function. NOW USE IT.

    IIRC TigerLights are issued to LA County Sheriffs deputies.
    LAPD has started issueing the Pelican 7060 which was designed for them.
    IIRC the SF Z2/G2Z is issued to FBI and Secret Service Agents.

    I went to Montreal, Québec, Canada, last monday and I saw that two police officiers were using "half dim/half bright" LED flashlights. After searching with Google, I found they are using Pelican M6 LED (1 watt luxeon?).

    No that would be because the Federal Police keep on pilfering all the state Police with higher pay packets

    I actually told her that she should look into a rechargeable set up, but she was content to buy bulk packets of 123's from the internet

    I think the point of the thread was to be a little more specific and actually name lights and agencies

    I totally forgot mentioning... I don't know if this is official or not, but I see Strions being carried by local OR State Troopers and Corrections Officers I've interacted with.

    I wasn't that much into lights when dealing with regular PD, but I'll keep my eyes open for'em.
